SGA Election Commission
The Election Commission is an independent body comprised of undergraduate students who help administer the SGA Elections. Some of the duties of the Commission include enforcing Election Policy, addressing violations, hosting the annual debate, and encouraging students to get involved with the election process.
Run for SGA
Undergraduate students can petition to run for Executive, Judicial, and Senatorial positions within the SGA. A minimum 2.5 GPA is required. To receive a petition, visit the SGA Office at University Union Rm. 226. Petitions will be available in late Monday, April 10th.
Students will have the opportunity to find out what it means to be an SGA senator. SGA Interest sessions will be held in early April. These are optional meetings where current members of SGA will discuss what it’s like to be part of SGA as well as the responsibilities of the positions of senator and justice. If you’re thinking about running and haven’t been a part of SGA, it’s encouraged that you should attend.
Work at Polls
Volunteer poll workers are needed for the SGA Election to help students use the Involved@TU system and cast their votes. Available shifts are on election days, May 2nd and 3rd between 8AM. – 5PM.
